Windows Live Drive may be DOA

blog CES ad hints at a "new way to share, protect and store," but a source says that it's not the long-rumored Windows Live Driver.

Bloggers are wondering if a teaser ad that Microsoft placed in a Consumer Electronics Show guide is a sign that Microsoft's rumored online storage service, Windows Live Drive, could be ready.

On first read, that seems a likely conclusion.

"All together now," the ad's headline reads. "Announcing a new way to share, protect and store what matters most."

However, a source close to Microsoftland says Live Drive is no longer, well, live. Instead, the ad appears to be more of a tease for some sort of local storage option, possibly some type of home server, the source said.
